Top Stories: Remembering Late Rapper E-Dubble, Sagamore Pendry Preps for Opening, Luxury Apartment Building Planned for North Roland Park
The most popular story on our site this week was Marion Winik’s soul-touching tribute to E-dubble, a Philadelphia rapper who lived in Hampden for some time and forged a bond with our columnist’s son, Vince. E-dubble, legally named Evan Wallace, befriended Vince years ago when the latter moved back to Baltimore after he graduated from music school. The towering, prodigious emcee and the recent graduate wound up performing around Baltimore and going on tour. Even after they went separate ways, they remained in touch.
Last month, days after they met up in Philadelphia, Williams was suddenly hospitalized with an infection and fell into a coma. He passed away weeks later.
“I feel the loss as a fan, as a friend, as a mother, as a fellow wordsmith and swimmer in the pool of the English language,” Winik writes. “He was not afraid to write about death. It was all through his work. I only wish we could hear what he would say now.”
